The Columbo Case Files

Pride … foreign intrigue … and several episodes bending the boundaries of both the Columbo series, and the television medium itself. An episode-by-episode guide through Season Five, with original comment, analysis, and essays. Both Patrick McGoohan AND Jack Cassidy appear this season, with this being the latter’s last role in Columbo. Janet Leigh, Hector Elizondo, and Ricardo Montalban are guest killers, too. Columbo will face some hard questions and great tests this season — come along!
